The "Couples' Devotional Bible" brings together Bible verses (using the New International Version) with devotional passages from 143 evangelicals, ranging from Dale Evans (wife of TV cowboy Roy Rogers) to Frank Peretti (author of "This Present Darkness" and other best-selling novels of spiritual warfare). Couples who follow the book's plan can read the Bible text and a useful devotion for each day of the week, with questions and activities for weekends and a subject index on topics from adultery to finances to sex to work. Unfortunately, the devotions do little to help readers understand biblical perspectives on marriage itself. (Beliefnet, Aug. 2000) -- From Beliefnet --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

If you're newly married or are contemplating marriage, the best-selling NIV Couples' Devotional Bible is for you. Whether you use it together as a couple or as individuals, this Bible will draw you closer to God and to each other. Each weekday you'll read a brief devotional message and a nearby Scripture passage. At the bottom of the devotion, you'll find "Marriage Builder" questions for discussion or personal evaluation. At the end of the week, you'll find "Weekending," which combines a short, reflective devotion with Scripture readings for Saturday and Sunday. The NIV Couples' Devotional Bible contains 52 weeks of devotions--an entire year to help you start your marriage off right. This Bible draws on the experiences and insights of over 140 contributors from all wages and walks of life. You'll read from the writings of marriage and family experts such as Jim and Sally Conway, Gary Smalley, Lewis Smedes, and the staff of Marriage Partnership magazine. You'll also enjoy the writings of Frederick Buechner, Charles Colson, Bill and Gloria Gaither, Ruth Bell Graham, Charles Swindoll, Joni Eareckson Tada, Philip Yancey and many others. The topics are as broad and important as marriage itself. Communication. Work. Sex. In-laws. Decision-making. Money. Spiritual growth. Friends. You'll find them here, together with the complete text of the New International Version, today's best-selling modern translation, known for its accuracy and readability. Now revised to reflect the realities of relationships today, the NIV Couples' Devotional Bible is a Bible for, by and about today's couple. A Bible for you. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love that these topics are brought up with meaningful questions with answers that develop into meaningful conversation between the two of us.

I'd definitely recommend this for any couple not just newly married or engaged.

My husband and I have bought many couple devotional books most of which has been read half-through and then forgotten. But this one is a keeper. Not only is it the Bible but the topics covered are very biblical and relevant to us every day. I love that these topics are brought up with meaningful questions with answers that develop into meaningful conversation between the two of us.
I also love the date ideas every weekend!
This has really brought us closer together and [more importantly] closer to God.

A few months back I got engaged to a awsome Christian women. We wanted to find a bible study or devotional to do togeather. After looking at the different christian book stores there were not alot of choices. I find this devotional bible a good start for anyone who is newly merried and engaged. The devotionals take only about 20 min to do and they have great "get to know you" questions that you can ask each other so you can learn from each other. The bible is a great size to take to college, in the car and to church.

My wife and I recently started using the NIV Couples' Devotional Bible for our devotions together as a married couple. The devotions have been lots of fun for us to read and do together. This is the NIV (New International Version) Bible with devotions for each day. The devotions cover a broad range of topics relevant to married couples from sex to money to work to family life. These devotions include both classic and contemporary writings. And the Marriage Builder questions are great for helping couples learn from one another. Zondervan's NIV Couples' Devotional Bible is great for married and newly-engaged couples who wish to study God's Word together and grow closer to Him and to each other.

About 7 years ago, My wife and I bought a "wedding gift basket" for $25 which included a NIV Couples' Devotional Bible, softcover, 2 wine glasses, and other items I don't remember, with the intention of giving items from it as wedding gifts. As I opened the Bible and read the Bible and devotions with my wife, we were stirred by what we read. We decided to keep the Bible. We have spent over 200 hours over the years reading the scriptures and devotionals, either together or individually. Just today, I was having a hard time getting over my impulse for procrastination and depression, and read the devotional titled "Conquering Disappointment" by Elizabeth Newenhuyse based on Ps 22:5 in which she wrote, in part:
"Disappointment can corrode a marriage like rust eats away at a car. Any number of things, a spouses' unemployment, a chronic illness, a serious betrayal -- these things can often kill marriages. This is where a spiritual perspective may not only help -- but be essential. Faith does not deny disappointment. Some things really are awful. ... Dr. Paul Brand may have the best answer to this conundrum... Paul responded to the question "Where is God when it hurts?" with this: "He is in you, the one hurting, not in it, the thing that hurts.
I have bought, received, and even giving many Christian couple devotional books and "How To" books, most of which have only been read half-through and then forgotten, but this one, as well as Night Life by Shirley and James and Shirley Dobson, "Two Into One: Relating in Christian Marriage" by Joyce Huggett, and "Sheet Music" by Dr. Kevin Leman are keepers. Not only is there a complete Bible in one of my favorite translations (the accurate and readable NIV or TNIV) but the topics covered by the devotionals are Biblical and relevant.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to build a Christian foundation in their relationship while fostering communication. While it is definitely geared towards married couples, the concepts and teachings can be applied to any mature relationship. My boyfriend and I are thoroughly enjoying the relationships, as we are trying to incorporate Christ into our relationship. The devotionals ask great questions that help you realize your differences/flaws/etc and how they can become your greatest strengths. Just skimming through it, I've already read lots of great things that have helped me conquer some insecurities and differences. This was an awesome purchase!

This book is a really good guide and study book for couple, I just get married, and I found the questions for the devotional page were very inspiring. I found a lot of comfort through reading bible and had a devotional page which regarded to the marriage, relationship issue. One of my favourite quotes from the book is "Your relationship is built on Christ." Sometimes, we tried to rely on our own strength to keep the promise, it was not the whole picture. The big picture is we need to trust God and let him guide us to be in the part. The devotional page also reminds me that it is God that holds all these things together. Couple have to trust God and through trusting, they will see their growth in Christ.
